house, the first ladies really have not spent much time. we have an example with michelle obama, she was not familiar with the white house, where as laura bush was familiar coming in during the george h.w. bush presidency. tell us a little bit about michelle obama's transition in and how she prepared for it. >> michelle obama is a serious student, but i don't think there is any way one can be prepared in a sense to really know what is going to be like. her husband had been a u.s. senator for a few years, but she and the girls had stayed in chicago where her whole family and support work. the bush people were incredibly helpful and generous about what the office was like and the structure and all that. the bushes were as well, personally, when the obama is visited. but i have to say there's just no substitute for being there. mrs. obama and the family were first at the adams hotel and then the blair house and into the white house for coffee, as is the tradition on inauguration morning. and everyone went off to the inauguration, and then what the white house residence staff does is jus
been restricted in giving before. >> the new york times is reporting the obama administration may revisit the possibility of arming syrian rebels after obama initially rejected the idea last fall. syrian refugees fleeing conflict are continuing to flood into neighboring countries at a rate of thousands per day. a jordanian border official said monday nearly 90,000 syrians have crossed into jordan since the beginning of the year. one of those refugees decried the conditions in her home country. >> our homes are all destroyed. we have nothing. if bashar al-assad once our country, let him have it. we came here after running between homes, trying to avoid the fire that rained down on us. if it were not for the free syrian army protecting us, we would have died. god help us. >> in the u.s., georgia is set to put a man did that tonight despite consensus among medical specialists is mentally disabled. warren hill was sentenced to die 1991 for killing a fellow prisoner. all three doctors who originally said hill did not be the legal definition of mental retarded have since reversed their
morning on this tuesday, february 19, 2013. the obama administration is walking back and immigration proposal after senate republicans said would hurt bipartisan efforts in congress. a handful of republican lawmakers in the house have proposed cutting spending $30 billion. should there be armed guards in schools? republicans this is your number -- democrats -- and dependents -- educators -- send us a tweet @cspanwj. or send us an e-mail. we will begin this e-mail with the hill newspaper and the house and house republicans proposing $30 million a year to fund cops in schools' programs. mark meadows and six other house republicans have proposed legislation that it spent $30 million a year on federal grants to help put police officers in schools across the country. according to a recent poll, 53% of americans believe increasing police presence at schools would be very effective in preventing future tragedies. -- we are getting your take on this this morning. armed guards in the schools as part of an overall effort to tighten gun laws. a democratic caller in florida, curtis, go ahead. ca
the obama administration says the iranian nuclear capability is such a threat is because it would cascade to proliferation around the middle east, but love it if you could address that as well. >> i will answer the questions posed very quickly. i am just a dot middle east expert. this session on iran is talking about iran, but i have a great deal of sympathy for the sentiment. i do believe north korea is a very big problem. we often have the debate if iran is irrational. from what i understand about north korea, you could barely fill a symbol. my sense is they are not always entirely rational either and there are some things going on in that regime that could lead them to do things that are irrational and that worries me enormously. the issue of proliferation gets to north korea as well. proliferation is a very big concern about iran's nuclear ization. it is one reason i suggested it's better that if we do not have to continue going down this road and if they never crossed the with the position threshold -- teh weaponization threshold. there is a hysteria on both sides. yes, proliferation

[laughter] >> he keeps it real. you don't want me to do that. >> i know. right. >> i would not be happy without my coffee in the morning. it's going to be very windy and cold on wednesday. in the meantime, today we were thinking yesterday at this time the moisture would move in by 7:00. we are pushing that back to about late morning for the d.c. metro. it's already pushing into western maryland. anything that gives northwest of the metro early this morning even before noon could have a mix. most of us are above freezing in the meantime. 39 degrees at reagan national. a wind chill at 31. winds out of the south today. we are 15 degrees warmer than this time yesterday morning. we are shooting for a high near 50 degrees. 38 at dulles, 36 in gaithersburg 30 in frederick 28 in martinsburg. you might get a wintry mix this
service. [applause] [applause] jon: "happening now" at the white house president obama shake hands with a group of first responders that were brought in to serve as a backdrop to his speech railing about the possibility of the sequester that gigantic meat axe that will be swung at the federal budget especially on the pentagon in ten days or so march 1st. that's when it's scheduled to kick in. you heard the president railing about it there. i'm jon scott along with jenna lee. a.b. stoddard is associate editor and a columnist for "the hill." the president railed about congress and this terrible law that was passed without mentioning that it was a white house idea, right? >> right. it is an idea that originated in the white house, but republicans certainly voted for the budget control act in 2011, which included the sequester, because they too thought it could be reversed or undone or replaced. and we're looking 18 months later at -- ten days as you said, not enough time to change these cuts. there is an acceptance in washington in both parties that it's going to go through, and both
, the obama campaign has decided to roll over much of its apparatus into a 501c4. reformers often talk about the worry of large donations going to a group whether it's a political committee or this type of committee and i don't know if you were helpful in setting the 501c4 up, but i was wondering how risky it might be to have a city -- a sitting president working for or raising money for a 501c4. >> i have not attempted to separate my comments -- i do represent organizing for action, which is the name of the organization you are referring to. i would simply say as you know, i will not be involved in electoral activity at all. in that sense, it's not to be confused with activity in an election cycle, the types of concerns the campaign finance sector we're talking about here today. as you know, it is devoted to federal and state public policy and issue development advocacy. it will be operating therefore as a social welfare organization. without going into tremendous amount of discussion about people's views of the feasibility of such an enterprise, i would say this -- the business of communic
are surprised. when president obama talks about abuse in medicare, somehow he is talking about medicare advantage. the administration should not be surprised that you have these bigger than expected cuts right here today on the reimbursement. dagen: to kind of look at it a picture, is this an effort by the government, either by the white house, to kind of chip away at even more the private option within medicare? >> i think you are absolutely right. the more there are other choices, the more people -- it has been working. the overall plan has come in significantly under budget. significantly under expectations. some of the allies do not like it. i do not think it is the right way to reform medicare spending. dagen: do you think, though, that the democrats will ever tackle cutting medicare spending? people are not paying in to medicare as much as they are taking out. how would you go about it? again, the dr. payments keep getting kicked down the road. when will these big picture cuts ever happen? >> look, i think you described it perfectly right. people are taking more out of the system
-bowles or bowles-simpson, do something. >> my last question is right on the. if not president obama, who? there's a short window here for a reelected president. if the guys are just to doug and this year, can't be done, three years from now there will be a whole new window to get something done. what do you think it will take if not president obama speak with my experience in negotiating the balanced budget agreement in 1996 at the beginning of the president's first term, president clinton's first term, is now is the opportune time. so what we need to do as americans is to quit complaining and push these guys to make a compromise they have to make in order to get something real done that put our fiscal house in order spent as erskine said, he spent hours, and days, in his work as the last person to balance the budget in the united states by working with newt gingrich and dick armey. he often says you only one, but i don't -- but he's that kind of savvy, mr. steady. and if he can't, if you can't, and i admire him deeply, watched him, he's a tremendous man, he's the best of the best, if he with h
this in both the bush administration and now in the obama administration. clearly, whatever limits, and i think the limits are very severe now on the demilitarized zone dealing with the proliferation question at all, but any prospect of dealing with it i think is nonexistent, as long as the state department maintains this kind of blackout policy and, not only dividing any information about it, but and, frankly, wanted to do with this at all in negotiations with north korea. chris hill took it off the table february agreement. did not mention proliferation. and that's just an example of the situation. so this relationship that north korea has with iran i believe has entered a new and more formidable and threatening stage, frankly, at this point. >> thank you, larry. if there is someone from state department. representing the state department right here. okay. the floor is open. anybody can comment to joe's comment, larry's, argument, what not. the floor is open. raise your hand. identify yourself. okay, would you come up? >> [inaudible] >> standby microphone, please. thank you. >> this question
liberal folks and most if not all of them voted for obama to the and so i think they share a similar world view as the leaders but i didn't buy the magazine to expand a little outlet. i bought it for that type of journalism that we can do inside of it, which you know, different people can say different things about how that intersects. we did some qualitative. do you know the new republic? do you think it is liberal or conservative? 24% of people said conservative and 22% said the liberal. now as an owner of a magazine it's interesting when in washington and new york a lot of folks will say they used to support the editorial board and the iraq format or this and that and it's a very conservative. other people will have the opposite viewpoint and what i always end up saying is we don't have a party line anymore. we have a lot of reporters and a lot of different opinions and hopefully each one of them can help, some of them you love and hate that some of them will change how you think about the world around you. >> for you going to write a column or have anything in an explicitly? >> i haven
